Writers for Deadpool?

Chalk this one up strictly as rumor (for now), but CHUD has gotten word that ZOMIBELAND scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick may be landing the job of filling the Merc with a Mouth's mouth with words.

"While nothing is official just yet, it looks like Fox could be hiring Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the writers of Zombieland, to script the adventures of the Merc With A Mouth. I did my due diligence and asked around but couldn't get a solid confirmation, so regard this one as a strong rumor... But if it's more than a rumor - and my source tells me there could be a trade break announcing this within days - it's actually a very good sign for Deadpool."

And indeed it is a very good sign as it this could be a strong, positive indication of where Fox wants to go with the character. Most of the pieces already seem to be in place, so now it's just a wait and see as movement on this project continues.
Extra Tidbit: In honor of co-creator Rob Liefeld, will Deadpool's costume have feet or not?

YES YES YES YES

This is probably the best rumour i have heard in a while, zombieland is EXACTLY the same tone as i would expect from a deadpool flick just the right amount of humour, slapstick, ball to the wall action and a paper thin plot.

Good writers are only as good as the people telling them what they want in the script. Which if they don't get a strong director that the studio trusts enough to leave alone, it'll all be for nothing.

if it wasnt for Ratman and Fox

that would sound very promising...but this studio has an uncanny ability to fuck up superheroes.

True, but when they get it right, they get it X2 right. I know that was to bad sequels ago but third times the charm right?

This is Good.

Glad to see this movie moving along quite nicely. Can't wait to see it.

FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC

I also loved "Zombieland" so this is great news to my ears.

And props to the Extra Tidbit. That's the most comics-aware reference I've seen a JoBlo writer make in quite some time!

I enjoyed Zombieland so this is good news for me. Most comic films look like crap and so I avoid them like the plague but Deadpool is a childhood favorite of mine. That being said this is one of the few comic films that I'm looking forward to.
